D-Head Weld Head

D-Head Weld Head D-Head Weld Head Mounted on Pipe Weld Head Welding

The moel D weld head is capable of reproducing all the precise motions of a skilled manual GTAW welder. It is specifically designed for multipass pipe welding applications and consistently produces welds meeting the most stringent code quality standards.

Used with Pipemaster Power Source Models, the D-Head improves productivity by increasing duty cycle, reducing repair rates and producing welds of consistant quality. The compact head is ideal for smaller diameter pipe applications with limited radial and axial clearance around the weld.

The D-Head mounts on the pipe by means of metal Guide Rings, which are available for all stnadard pipe/tube sizes. The weld head mounts entirely on one side of the joint, allowing for pipe-to-fitting welds. The compact head-mounted wire feeder uses standard size wire spools.

The D-Head drive system incorporates heat tolerant components and a water-cooled housing for use on CrMo and other alloys requiring preheat. Mounting the head on an oversize Guide Ring with adapter feet creates an air space, preventing heat damage.
